Thanks for the suggestion Indie43, I have already sent Gerry Potter a private message concerning the possibility of combining medicinal mushrooms and Salvestrols. I'll wait for him to reply and will share his answer here for everyone to read..

Hi everyone, this is Gerry Potter's response to my query, in quotes:
"Hi Swift, heres my answer to your question about combining medicinal mushrooms with salvestrols:
Its completely safe to combine medicinal mushrooms with salvestrols, but there is not any evidence yet to suggest that they help with their efficacy, although it is possible that they could increase the overall anticancer effect.
Medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi and Turkey Tail mushroom contain fungal metabolites that are toxic to cancer cells such as Ganoderic acid which inhibits DNA topoisomerase and works in the same way as the clinically used anticancer drugs Topotecan and Irinotecan. Clinical research shows that medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi can boost the effects of chemotherapy and help reduce side effects, but these particular studies also showed that they had little effect when used alone."
And that's the end of his answer to my query.

HI GERRY, what is GANODERIC ACID? and where can I get it?

And where can i get Turkey Tail mushroom (I never heard of it) in the store?

Have been following this topic for months after my mother-on-law was diagnosed with lung cancer (non small cell adenocarcinomer). I haven't posted anything until now, but wanted to add to the discussion once I had some results to share.
A bit of background... my mother in law was diagnosed mid December, and we immediately started her on Salvestrol Platinum 6000 pts/day. The reason I knew about them is that a friend of mine had met Gerry Potter personally years ago and then told me the story of salvestrols etc, so I had a level of trust in their authenticity from the outset.
She's also been doing chemotherapy in that time, plus she's on a regime of other supplements, eating organic produce, juicing at least once a day, eating the Budwig cottage cheese concoction once or twice a day, and also taking Turkey Tail mushroom extracts (PSP). For info, these can be bought online. From my research it seems that either Mushroom Science or Oriveda are the way to go (google them).
Given the complex regime she's on, it's impossible to say exactly what it working, but I can report that in less than 2 months her tumor has shrunk between 30 - 50% (as evidenced by PET scan). There has also been no metastisis.
Definitely no smoking gun here, but something is working and we won't be stopping the Salvestrols! I'll post again in another 6 weeks after her next PET scan.

Just want to say, I've had a small lump in my mouth for a few years that I didn't take much notice of. It's survived antibiotics and it's been around for too long to be anything other than a tumour. I was randomly annoyed at hearing all these adverts about how people still haven't managed to cure cancer and decided to research alternative ways that are known to beat cancer so I was prepared for the possibility of myself or people I know getting it and Salvestrol looked the most promising. I love to experiment with things on myself because I have celiac disease (similar to an allergy to gluten/wheat) and have experimented with diet things for a long time as a result. I wanted to take it not only as a preventative, but also to experiment to see what effect it had on my moles and on this lump in my mouth which I was assuming must be a tumour.I took a Salvestrol supplement and 7 hours later, it felt like it had shrunk and flattened a lot. On the second day, upon taking another Salvestrol supplement, it's shrunk even more in just an hour or two and doesn't feel like it extends as far up my gum. The only surefire way I will be certain this has worked is when there is nothing there at all. I'll post again if/when this is the case, because the more people post about their positive outcomes from Salvestrol the better!This is really amazing and everyone really should stop seeing this as a potential cancer drug and more like a Vitamin that we require!

After having been diagnosed with esophogeal cancer, my daughter, age 33, was died a number of times after her 2nd chemo (low dosage supposedly) chemo treatment. After much hospitalization, it was discovered that she has Fanconi's Anemia, and that chemo and radiation could and together - would kill her. We are turning to holistic treatments and she has just started taking Salvestrol Platinum. Thank you for your story; I pray it helps her. She can barely swallow and has recently had a feeding tube put in, which is still healing after 6 weeks, due to the Fanconi's Anemia complications.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
